Continuity Planning: Overview

Continuity planning is an essential element within any organisation and government. Newrisk Limited is able to assist clients with designing and implementing effective continuity plans to avoid, minimise and mitigate the impacts of major incidents and disruption events.

In conjunction with a risk assessment (identifying and assessing relevant risks), using Newrisk Limited's expertise in continuity planning will assist organisations and governments in meeting their legal, corporate governance and audit obligations.

Traditionally, organisations may focus on interruptions arising from specific material damage, but a much wider risk is addressed by business continuity planning. Organisations should protect themselves from all risks, instead of those concerning only specific material damage. This could result in improved efficiencies and a better return on risk investment as there is greater protection from catastrophic losses and a reduction in frequency and severity of other losses.

A business continuity philosophy can help to guide risk management, develop methods, measure outcomes, reinforce successes and sanction failures. It may help regenerate the profit-making process and the holistic approach may soften the impact of loss on business interruption. It is worth remembering that a company operating on a 10% profit margin requires an extra £1 million in sales to cover £100,000 of losses.

          BREAKING NEWS

  • TEG7
  • Cyber Threats

In response to the Paris & Brussels terror attacks, Newrisk Ltd became a founder member of The Exercise Group7 LLP (TEG7) which is a dynamic team drawn from cyber & former special defence fields to exercise organisations & governments on emerging terror and cyber threats.  The TEG7 profile can be seen at www.teg7.co.uk. The Manchester Arena suicide bombing in May 2017 highlights a new military style of terrorism from ISIS with a greater potential to attack the public & security personnel in many countries.  TEG7 integrates physical & cyber security for corporate exercises to protect against terror & cyber-attacks.

Delta & British Airways have suffered a world-wide loss of aviation business systems as a result of computer system outages.  Newrisk Limited - as part of The Exercise Group7 LLP - conducts exercises in integrated cyber & physical security transformation for companies & governments.  Cyber threats are becoming more serious for critical infrastructure & require new principles in management & exercises of personnel to pre-empt crises. Degraded operations will become a fall-back if persistent attacks continue to exploit vulnerabilities & use ransomware or nation state motivated attacks. The Ukraine power grid attacks are a key lesson for infrastructure protection. Aviation remains the industry ‘canary’ for cyber failures.
